Brown: "I'm making an impact now."

Brown: "I'm making an impact now."

30 September 2018

Reds youngster Jacob Brown scored his first Barnsley goal in yesterday afternoon's 3-1 victory over Fleetwood Town and he spoke with us post-match!

After putting in a fine display on his full league debut for the club last time out against Coventry City but being unlucky not to open his Reds account, the young forward certainly put that behind him at Highbury Stadium yesterday.

His crucial goal, a first half equaliser having latched onto a superb Alex Mowatt pass, is something he admits wasn't the greatest of strikes, but he felt proud regardless and told us he'd take any goal!

"It wasn't exactly the best goal," he said, smiling.

"But I'll take any goal to be fair. I just swung my leg around him and I thought it was going in but it's bounced down and back to me to tap it in.

"I was just buzzing when it went in. I'll tell my mates it was edge of the box, top corner, until they see it!"


Stendel Post-Fleetwood

30 September 2018

Brown has been beating himself up since the Coventry fixture. 

He had got himself into some very good positions on that afternoon but didn't get the rub of the green. He admitted yesterday couldn't have gone any better in terms of him being able to put that to bed.

He said: "I had loads of chances at Coventry, I probably should have had a hat-trick at least. But this was perfect for me to get over that game because it's been playing on my mind a lot.

"To keep my place then, and to go out there and get a goal and the three points, I'm just buzzing."

Having always been a striker going through the age groups at Oakwell, Jacob has been used by Daniel Stendel in a variety of different positions through pre-season and now in competitive games.

He admits he's still learning the roles given to him but says he's just happy to be playing for the club and will give everything to help the team and to improve as a young player.

"I've not been playing wide right for too long, it's still new to me but I'm always learning. I just want to play and I'll keep working hard, giving 100% wherever I'm asked to play. 

"The gaffer has helped me a lot, with my running and in terms of my speed. Movement, off the ball. When he's there shouting it just motivates you to keep on going. I'm enjoying it.

"I've been at this club for a very long time, and people probably don't know that because I'll admit I've not really done much. But I think I'm making an impact now and I want to keep it up and to show what I'm about."
